Regular Maintenance

3 Ways to Benefit from Regular Automotive Maintenance

Extend Your Vehicle’s Life

Protecting Your Asset

You might know you’re supposed to bring your vehicle in for routine maintenance, but do you know why? Driving to our shop for a checkup might seem like an inconvenience, but there are major benefits to doing so. Besides extending your car’s life and keeping it safe to operate, consistent upkeep can also reduce your need for major auto repairs. That’s why Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care in Kansas City, Missouri, provides gold-tier, preventative maintenance services.

Why You Should Invest in Your Vehicle’s Maintenance

When you bought your car, you made a long-term investment that extended beyond that initial purchase. As part of that commitment, you’ll need to have your vehicle professionally serviced, but that investment will pay off in big ways.

  • Extend Your Vehicle’s Life
  • Routine tune-ups can optimize your car’s performance and keep it operating well into the future. Some of these vital components include fluid levels, tire health, and the powertrain (which includes your engine and transmission).

  • Keep Your Car Safe —
  • The last thing you want is to be stranded on the side of the highway because your car broke down. Fortunately, regular maintenance visits can reduce those odds and ensure important parts — such as your tires, brakes, and engine — are in good condition. If you have any concerns when you visit our auto repair shop, we encourage you to bring them to our attention.

  • Prevent Major Auto Repairs
  • Which would you rather pay: a minor maintenance fee or a major repair bill? Over time, your vehicle wears down with use, which can lead to leaks, cracks, or other issues. Our technicians are Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certified, so when you visit our shop, they can potentially catch these problems before they get out of hand (and expensive).
